Friday? More like Fri-yay
The bastion of glimmering hope, more commonly known as the weekend, is once again within our weary reaches. That’s right - it’s Friday, and not only is it Friday, but for a lot of you it’ll be payday Friday. Widely acknowledged as the most powerful of all Fridays.
If you’re one of the lucky ones getting paid this week, you might be in the mood to treat yourself. And we’ve got a few apps that’ll help you do just that.
Find that table with your name on it…
The week before payday is always the same. You’re low on cash and you haven’t been out for a decent slap-up meal in ages. You might have even resorted to bringing make-your-own sandwiches in for lunch. But, you can wave a detached and emotionless farewell to those dark days, because it’s time to make it rain.
You can eat, drink and be merry once again – especially with a little help from OpenTable (iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry). There’s no better app for finding the restaurant worthy of your presence, and securing their best table. You know, the one with the view and away from the rowdy birthday-celebraters? Yeah, you know it.
Get your glad rags on…
Before you hit that restaurant you might want to make sure you’re dressed for the occasion and looking sharp. ShopStyle (iOS, Android, Windows Phone) makes clothes shopping easy, especially if you know the kind of thing you’re looking for. Described as ‘fashion Google’ by some, it will happily browse through its massive database of online stores to find that perfect staple piece you’ve had you eye on since mid-month.
You can search by keyword, so if you know exactly what you’re after – from a striped cashmere V-neck to that little black dress – the chances are ShopStyle will track it down for you.
Make your money go further…
Even though you’re flush, you still like a bargain, right? That’s where VoucherCodes.co.uk (iOS, Android) can help you out.
Download it, fire it up and you’ll be able see the nearest deals and offers to you. Or simply search through the 1,000s of new deals that are added weekly, from the likes of Marks & Spencer’s, Amazon, Matalan, BHS, GAP, Dorothy Perkins, Miss Selfridge, Clarks, New Look, John Lewis… we could go on, but it’s time for the pub.
Have an awesome weekend 😁
